We are Nicole & Gary, we founded Yoga Breaks in Spain
shortly after moving to Spain in
2003. Gary was a school teacher in the UK and
Nicole was a corporate marketing manager (& part time yoga teacher) both
working long hours without ever seeming to get anywhere. Sound
We moved to Spain to take a break from the pressures of
UK living. Our daughter, Poppy, was spending 10 hours a day at a
child minder whilst we rushed between work, home, domestic duties and seeing
friends. It was exhausting. We knew that if we
didn't change, something was going to break.
she loved teaching yoga more than
the "exciting" world of corporate marketing. After years of studying
yoga, I realised I felt happiest when I was on my yoga mat
rather than behind a desk. I spent
months ignoring my nagging intuition & kept juggling work, yoga & home life.
Eventually, a serious illnesses forced me to slow down
& think about the way we lived. That was when I awoke to the
fact that yoga bought more peace and joy to me than the trappings of a successful
career. This is what prompted us to escape to Spain! And now, here we are,
offering yoga holidays to stressed
we used to be!
In the 9 years we have been running yoga holidays and
health retreats, we've gained an incredible insight to the important
ingredients required to create the perfect yoga and wellbeing holiday.
We've listened carefully to our guests and tweaked the programme
along the way to create the polished yoga inspired wellbeing holidays that we
offer to you today.
We are more than happy to answer your questions as we
appreciate your holiday time is precious. We're always honest & open
and will give you all the information you need to help make a decision to join
us - or not!

The Costa Blanca area of Spain is truly beautiful with
stunning mountain scenery and an abundance of lush vegetation. The pace of life
here is much slower. No-one
is measured by what car they drive, how much they earn or what they're wearing. This is how life should be.
Within months of arriving, we ran our first yoga holidays
for friends & family but word
spread & friends of the friends wanted to come too!
Now we run holidays between March & October when the weather
is at it's absolute best.
